The top prize (pictured below) comes mounted on a galvanised trailer.

Ad-ons include a 45cm-diameter opening and a manual leveller to ensure an even flow of milk to all teats.

Milk Bar mobiles have no pipes or tubes to clog and trap bacteria and are described as being very easy to clean.

Also up for grabs is a pallet of GAIN calf feed (42 bags). The winning entrant can choose from any one of GAIN’s calf feed range, each optimised for the growth of your calves at each stage of their development.

There will be 10 runner-up prizes to be given away also.

Safety comes first

When taking a photo of livestock, always remember that safety comes first. Please be extremely careful when taking your CalfLife images.

Remember to be very careful around calves when cows are present. Animals can be unpredictable so take your shots from behind a gate or barrier. Even the quietest cow can attack if she feels her calf is in danger.

How the competition works

Get your entries in before the closing date this Sunday, March 23.

After the closing date, a public vote on will open on the Glanbia Agribusiness Facebook page.

There will be 1 overall winner of the competition and 10 runners up.

So get snapping and the best of luck to all entrants.
